Gypsy Queen used the 2013 Harper throwback image in a throwback mini in 2014, which I though was pretty lame, but it hasn't hurt that 2013 Heritage Harper throwback one bit.

4 Fortune Teller Inserts (Trout, Swanson, Sanchez, Scherzer)
3 Hand Drawn Art Reproductions (Syndergaard, Rizzo, Sale)
1 Black and White Parallel /50 (Scherzer)
2 Purple Parallels /250 (Encarnacion, Duvall)
1 Missing Nameplate Parallel (Beltre)
2 Missing Blackplate Parallels (RLopez, EGattis)
1 High Number Short Print SP (Ozzie Smith)
1 GQ Glassworks Box Topper of Carlos Correa (these are awesome cards !)

First Auto: Alex Bregman (GQA-AB)

does every player and auto have a gum back variation? it seems to be the same group of players over and over.

you get a ton per case, and cases aren't high
and comparing to similar TH cards

if color swaps that are 2 per case can sell for as low as $10-$15 for stars, then why are capless being listed so high, for example

also, and I am beating this like a dead horse, but it's Gypsy Queen!!! anyone who has opened GQ in past knows it does not have a big following or sell well
last year SSP were literally going 999 cents and it took me 6 months to sell some even at $5 or best offer
many of us tried to say this early on, many skipped the product or opened very little

the thing that has helped early prices are the changes, both sellers and buyers weren't sure what to make of it
and everyone sees TH throwback going high but those are 1:18 cases and outside the first 1-2 sales even on such an in-demand product like TH, they still cool down, so any throwback in this can't really even really compare to those, especially when they have parallels and are easier to hit


we can't forget that all these variations have parallels that aren't much harder to hit then the base ones, then there are green /99 too
and now 5x7 wall art, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
This, 100%

I changed prices on my capless no names and capless stars similar to color swap heritages and saw a nice string of sales on 'em.....I enjoy the capless and throwbacks, but the no blackplate/nameplate is.....meh.

Hmm..this is not the product that I was thinking of.

What was that product that comes with a small package of mini cards? Ginter? I always confuse the two.

GQ did last year. Topps did away with it

Well you never know what will be popular from a release..

But it sure looks like the Gum backs won this one..

They are really cool...

Throwbacks were a bad idea? I guess they should of made them 1 in 5-6 cases instead of every other and no parallels

Sorry if it's been posted, but what are the really pale cards that are almost pink? Got one per blaster. Not seeing a missing nameplate or anything, maybe printing error?

Maybe the value isn't there like with Heritage, but this product has made a fan out of me. I was never a Heritage OR a GQ guy, but for some reason I have liked both these products this year. I like the capless variations a lot, and I think the no blackplates, while gimmicky, look pretty nice. I think with patience some of these will sell decent.

In my opinion the capless are cooler than a color swap in Heritage which is relatively bland, IMO.
